Baxter hits out at costly moments destroying Chiefs


Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter has hit out at his side's costly errors after a disastrous 4-1 defeat to Royal AM in a DStv Premiership clash at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

A Sepana Letsoalo brace followed by a Sibusiso Mabiliso own goal and MfundoThikazi stoppage-time strike sealed an embarrassing defeat for Baxter's side as their title ambitions took a blow.

The 68-year-old lamented at his side's costly errors at crucial moments in the match in Saturday's defeat.

"At the moment, we're making such poor decisions at moments of the game," Baxter said post-match.

"I have to say we played well for 30 minutes, but then for moments of the game and it was the same against Sundowns, moments of the game are destroying the complete performance."

"If we would have played properly for the full 90 minutes we wouldn't be having these discussions.

Baxter also admitted that his defence was a concern after now conceding as many as seven goals after four matches played.

"We've conceded four this evening, when you concede four in one game is a high total," Baxter added.

"If we would have had a shutout tonight it would have been quite mightily, you know it's one of those where tonight's game has put a spin on our start to the season, unfortunately.

"We could have said with a good win tonight, the only hiccup was against Sundowns and we played quite well there actually.

"Tonight makes everything look dark, but I think if I were to look at the result tonight and say we're not happy with that performance.

"But we can't let that taint everything that we've been doing."
